 Does FM 5.5 Developer come with any Manuals?

I know.  Once upon a time this would have been a stupid question to ask, but
today with software often consisting of a CD and a box, it'd be nice to know
if any manuals are available.

Does the FM 5.5 Developer edition come with any manuals of any substance, or
just some flimsy "Getting Started" pamphlet or other similar guide?

I'm giving FM 5.5 Developer serious thought, but before making the jump I'd
like to know ahead of time so I can order books, manuals, etc, if need be.
I'm using FM 4.1 now (which actually came with a pretty decent set of
manuals) and feel like upgrading in a big way.

Thanks.

Depends which version you buy.

FM 5.x Developer, if bought as a single stand-alone, should
come with some fairly thick manuals, and they should be reproduced
on the CD you get as .pdf files. If you buy it as part of a VLA,
then maybe not...

I can vouch for the fact that as part of a VLA you do not get the manual,
but they do come as PDFs on the disk. You can also purchase the manual
seperately but it is pretty pricey.

Ok.  Great.  That's really what I wanted to know.  I'm 'ok' with manuals in
.pdf, but it's also good to know that I can order bound manuals too.

Looks like I'll go for it.
